Director Joe Cornish Wanted For KING KONG Prequel, SKULL ISLAND
This past weekend, the Comic-Con audience at Hall H attending the Legendary presentation were stunned by news of a King Kong prequel on the way. Legendary presented the news by showcasing a special teaser trailer that was created just for the event. The film will open November 4, 2016, but who the heck will direct it?
Legendary had one of the biggest surprises this weekend at Comic-Con when they announced a new King Kong movie, Skull Island, with a quick teaser trailer. According to Deadline they also have made an offer to Joe Cornish ("Attack The Block") to direct it.
"I’m told they’ve offered the directing job to Joe Cornish, who has been offered big movies since his low-budget alien-invasion breakthrough pic Attack The Block. I’m not sure if Cornish will take the job because he’s offered so much — like Universal’s Section Six, the Aaron Berg-scripted drama about the formation of MI6 Brit intelligence branch, for instance." - Deadline
